B2B setup

Hybrid B2C & B2B

For more than 15 years, Firebox Australia has manufactured and designed safety products that have been engineered to protect all Australians in their homes, businesses, workplaces and vehicles. These products, along with help of their service partners, ensure that your building or vehicle complies with the latest Australian Fire Safety Standards. Firebox Australia has a complete range of Fire Extinguishers, Emergency and Exit Lighting, Smoke Alarms and Fire Plumbing products which are distributed throughout Australia via one of their five branches and preferred wholesalers and retail distributors.

Firebox Australia works hard to bring strong innovation to the Australian Fire Industry; their latest product is the Li-ION Fire range which includes the first extinguisher in the Australian market suitable for Lithium-Ion battery fires. They couple their product innovation and range with unparalleled service and strive hard to exceed their customer's expectations on a daily basis.

The challenge

Firebox knew they wanted to grow, a team of 40 + nationally came with its difficulties, and adding more staff only came with more challenges.

They wanted to switch from a traditional sales and customer service strategy to an online one for several reasons. First, they wanted to ensure consistent and accurate communication, product data, and customer service. Second, they wanted to increase sales by leveraging upselling and suggestive selling techniques. Additionally, they wanted to create loyal customers and reward them for repeated purchases. Firebox have more than 700 products in their portfolio and counting, it was hard for their staff to know everything about them. With a digital model, they can use landing pages with product explainer videos and other features. The website also allows us to be available 24/7 for our customers.

Firebox had considered moving to an online framework before, but it seemed too difficult because of the number of customers and physical price lists they had. Then they found Shopify and SparkLayer, which offered them some benefits and flexibility with loading price lists and pricing rules, including price breaks, discounts, and much more. Shopify and SparkLayer also enable us to integrate with third-party ERP systems, such as Syspro.

The solution

Firebox implemented SparkLayer into a blended DTC & B2B Shopify store and were able to enable a brand new B2B channel to accelerate their growth. With SparkLayer installed, this has now made possible:

The results

With SparkLayer integrating seamlessly with SafeStyle's Shopify store, this has brought a number of other key benefits:

“SparkLayer has been a game-changer for our business. We were able to transition to an online platform with ease and efficiency. Our staff were initially worried that our customers might prefer the traditional methods, but they were pleasantly surprised by how well they adapted to the new system. SparkLayer has helped us improve our customer service, order accuracy, and sales performance. We highly recommend SparkLayer to anyone who wants to take their business to the next level." ~ Shane Duffield, General Manager, Firebox Australia
